SENS DROP 3-2 SHOOUTOUT TO DEVILS

ALBANY, N.Y. – Binghamton fell 3-2 in a shootout to the Albany Devils despite holding a 2-1 lead heading into the final period of play.  David Wohlberg scored with just under 11 minutes remaining to force overtime before Scott Wedgewood stopped all five Binghamton skaters in the shootout to give the hosts the come-from-behind win.

Binghamton scored the lone tally in the opening period following a turnover deep in the Devils’ defensive zone.  Shane Prince stole the puck behind Albany’s net and found Matt Puempel out front who beat Wedgewood for his 26th goal of the year.  Scott Greenham turned aside all 10 shots faced in the period while Wedgewood stopped five of six.

Albany converted on a power-play opportunity 9:13 into the middle frame to even the score at one apiece.  Reid Boucher was credited with the tally off assists from Alex Urbom and Scott Timmins.

The B-Sens retook the lead with less than three minutes remaining in the second when Alex Grant beat Wedgewood for his 9th goal on the year, second as a Binghamton Senator.  Fredrik Claesson and Cole Schneider picked up the assists as Binghamton took a 2-1 lead heading into the final intermission.

Albany tied the game up once again at the 9:13 mark of the third period when Wohlberg converted on a 2-on-1 rush for his fourth goal of the season.  Despite good scoring chances for each team in the waning moments of regulation, the score remained 2-2 to force overtime.

Following a scoreless overtime, the teams went to the skills competition where Rod Pelley converted on his first shootout attempt of the year to give the Devils the 3-2 win.

Greenham finished with 24 saves on 26 shots faced in his first loss in a B-Sens uniform.  Wedgewood turned aside 23 of 25 chances to earn the hard-fought victory.

Binghamton travels to Rochester next Friday for a 7:05p.m. faceoff against the Americans before returning home for back-to-back games.  Saturday the Sens host Norfolk at 7:05p.m. before entertaining the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at 3:05p.m. Sunday afternoon.  Tickets for both games are available by calling the Binghamton Senators Executive Office at (607) 722-7367 or stopping in between 9:00a.m. and 5:30p.m.  Fans can also purchase tickets through the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets during normal business hours by visiting www.ticketmaster.com or at 1-800-745-3000.
